Be sure to set up a schedule and keep submitting your site. Your listing will drop over time, and as more and more sites are submitted, your listing could be dropped all together. Once a month should be satisfactory for your search engine marketing.

One important tip to keep in mind when submitting your site - Do NOT submit your listing more than once a week! Some search engines will ban your domain all together for life for spamming their database.
